Applying for an Exhibition
All rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors can apply for a solo show by submitting your body of work, artist statement, budget, and space proposal. The SSG Jury, consisting of current MICA students, will review all submissions anonymously and collectively determine the best work for the gallery spaces.
Artists gain experience in curating their work, submitting a professional application for a juried show, installation/de-installation, hosting a gallery opening, and more.
There are four student space galleries on campus dedicated exclusively to solo undergraduate student exhibitions throughout the year — the Piano Gallery, Pinkard Gallery, and Gateway Galleries 1 and 2.
The Piano Gallery, located on the first floor of Meyerhoff House, is a versatile space that is ideal for displaying paintings, illustrations, photographs and some sculptures.
Pinkard Student Space Gallery, housed on the first floor of the Bunting Center across from the Decker Library, is most conducive for works of video, interactive media, installation, sculpture and fibers. This is the only gallery that can be painted.
The Gateway is home to two Student Space Galleries. Both galleries in the Gateway can be found on the first floor, outside BBOX Theater. These two gallery spaces are best suited for two dimensional work, sculpture and installations. Larger pieces work extremely well in this open space.
